Diablo 4 has undoubtedly been in the spotlight frequently since its initial announcement at BlizzCon in 2019 for various reasons. Quin69 berated Blizzard for their handling of the game’s season pass during a recent livestream.
The language used in Diablo 4’s most recent quarterly development update isn’t what the Twitch streamer was hoping for. Quin69 made a sarcastic remark about the title’s $60 cost, mocking it ruthlessly. in response to the significant development update that was published on August 18, 2022.
Blizzard has come under fire over the past few years, with Diablo Immortal being the latest failure for the company because of its pay-to-win monetization. Players from all over the world gave it a lot of negative feedback, and some well-known streamers criticized the publisher for how they handled the game.
Quin69 went so far as to demonstrate his point by spending $10,000 on the loot grind portion of the game’s monetization system, only to still come up empty-handed.
However, things could alter as Diablo 4 approaches. Compared to Diablo Immortal’s infamous free-to-play business model, which most gamers have criticized, the $60 price tag on the game has proven to be quite advantageous for the game.
Quin69 is still not persuaded by it, though. The Twitch streamer seemed very disappointed in Blizzard after reading the first few sentences of the Quarterly Update Season Pass Description because it didn’t inspire him with much hope for the company’s future.
The new title will be available in the cosmetic shop alongside the Battle Pass rewards, per the update. Given Blizzard’s strategy for the upcoming game, the rewards—which are still a little unclear—should primarily be cosmetics.
Quin’s sarcastic remarks primarily point toward a segment of the gaming community that has accepted the practice of asking for a significant amount of money from its players, even though this is a huge relief for all Diablo franchise fans.
Players have a lot of faith and hope in Diablo 4 as is to be expected after the disastrous Diablo Immortal. The majority of viewers appeared perplexed about the development update, and some even criticized features like Battle Passes and cosmetics, based on the comments.
